James Coleman interviewed Dean Winters about this on Radio Live last night. He stuck to his guns/party line: "ScamBusters making assumtions ...." "Not a 'Gang of Romanians' ... just happen to all be from the same place." Quickly changed the discussion from hacking to phishing. "TradMe will NEVER ask...

So, not only hackers, scammers, phishers and other mongrels that get a hold of your email address through nefarious means, can very easily hack your TM account ..... anyone you trade and have email contact with can as well!!

.......... if your computer is taking 20+ seconds to load a page, you should either get a new computer, fix your old one or get this new thingy they call 'broadband'. Even on a bad day, I have never, ever seen a page take over 10 seconds to load. 2 minutes & 35 seconds for "Webuy" to load on my lin...

"In order for this Clagger Trojan to make an appearance in the top ten, it must have been spammed out to millions and millions of email addresses worldwide. Trojan horses, which cannot spread on their own, account for roughly two-thirds of all reported malware. Rather than mass bombardment, most Tr...

It's bad enough when the 'Anglers' :grin: get a hold of people's email addresses, but for TM (Tiny Minds!) to create a situation where they can easily acquire passwords as well is an absolute bloody disaster.
